Students will acquire basic knowledge of toxicokinetics (including xenobiotics absorbance, metabolism, and elimination) and toxicodynamics (mechanisms of toxicity). Students will also learn to recognize signs of intoxication and the available therapeutical strategies.
The course of toxicology will be helsd afs front lessons
- Mechanisms of toxicokinetic: Absorption, distribution, metabolism, elimination
- Mechanisms of toxicity – DL50 – safety sheets
